The Funeral of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

On the eve of the Funeral, 6.30pm Sunday 18th September, there will be a reflective service of readings, prayers, and music.

The service will last just under an hour.  Afterwards there will be time for a glass of wine or other refreshment, and then those who wish to remain will keep the Silence together at 8pm.

On the day of the Funeral, Monday 19th September, the bell will toll for an hour from 10am.  At 11am the Funeral will be shown on a screen in the Church, and all are welcome to come and watch it together.

The Church is open during the day at least until the end of Monday for anyone who wants to come in and reflect, pray, light a candle, or write something in the book of condolence.

Otherwise our worship and devotions continue as usual, with the Parish Communion service at 10 on Sunday, Morning and Evening Prayer daily (7.30 and 5.30 weekdays, 8.30 and 6.30 weekends).

All are welcome.

Huge thanks to all who made our Easter Services so glorious!

Sunday 24th we come down to earth with our Annual Meeting (to elect Churchwardens) and Annual Parochial Church Meeting (for other business of the Parish).  Anyone on the electoral roll can participate, and in addition anyone who is registered to vote in civil elections in the Parish can participate int eh Annual Meeting. The agendas are here.   At the APCM will be asked to approve the Annual Report and Accounts, which have been commended to the APCM by the PCC.  A copy is herewith.

And in general … welcome to Holy Trinity!

Come as you are.  All are welcome.  10am on Sunday is our main service.  We sing five hymns, and some of the other words of the service.  We hear the Bible read, we hear a sermon, we pray together, and we celebrate Holy Communion.  It lasts just over an hour.  Afterwards there are refreshments and chat.  Then at about ten to twelve we head down to the top of Danebury Avenue for Prayers for Ukraine.

There is much more to belonging to Church than Sunday worship – we serve one another, we serve the community, we build up friendships, we strive together to live well.  But the best way is in is usually to come and join in worship and meet everyone over tea or coffee afterwards.  All are welcome.
